This is a very important project worthy of our support.
“The Sky Is Red will tell the stories of underrepresented and marginalized individuals pushing for gender, race, and class equity in the growing world of ultimate frisbee from 1968 to the present. The film will explore the parallels and connections between history and present-day events. The unsung efforts and tricky conversations in the small community of ultimate become a microcosm for the fight to upend institutional power balances in the world.”

Heads up Falmouth girls! Maine Ultimate is hosting a very cool ultimate clinic for girls of all playing experience this Sunday, October 22 from 10:45 AM -12:45 PM at the Wainwright Sports Complex in South Portland.
This FREE event is designed to teach girls how to play ultimate- from throwing and catching all the way through playing a full game of ultimate. Each participant will receive a free disc and lunch from one of Maine Ultimate’s food truck partners. And experienced players who bring along new friends will get an extra free jersey for helping spread the ultimate word!
You can register for the GUM clinic here over at Maine Ultimate.
Ultimate frisbee, a different world from Abracadabras on Vimeo.
I need a different world;
a world where I decide what is fair;
in which respect and friendship mean everything.
A world with gender equality.
A world where a ball has less power than a word.
I need a different world.
I need ultimate frisbee.
A sport without referees,
where fair play and gender equality are above victory.
New Rogue policy: Always choose “same” over “different” when flipping two discs at the start of a game. Here’s the math.
